E3 2016 rewarded us with more games. Let’s see what Bethesda is planning for us!
On their second E3 showcase, in Los Angeles, on June 12, Tim Willits, studio director at id Software, began the conference just after a reveal trailer for Quake Champions. “The game that defined competitive multiplayer is back and it’s better than ever.”
Peter Hines, Global VP of PR and Marketing at Bethesda Softworks, took the stage to talk about their last year releases. “The response to all of these games has been amazing and your enthusiasm and support for us has encourage us to go even bigger.” The second game to have the spotlight was The Elder Scrolls: Legends, a strategy card game.
Hines continues to talk about new DLC planned for Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were revealed to be released this year.
It was right after that that Raphael Colantonio, president and co-creative-director at Arkane Studios, talked about their current games in the making. “Our passion is for a very specific kind of game: first-person immersive games.””Our games blend narration and simulation in a way that makes every player experience different”, “where players can improvise and where choices have consequences.”
Besides Dishonored 2, Prey it’s another first-person immersive game they’re working on, that adds a psychological thrill.
Hines seems to love to give updates of their games as he reveals that DOOM is also the target of new updates, with new features and items to be added in the coming months, as well as a playable DEMO.
Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online, brought some numbers and news of additional content and features with the Dark Brotherhood. One Tamriel is a feature that also has been revealed: “all content barriers are gone and there are no restrictions on alliances or questing.” “From the moment you get out of the tutorial, the entire game world is opened for you to explore freely.”
After that, Peter Hines brought something unexpected, but not new, from Bethesda: Bethesda VR. It seems that some of the games from Bethesda will have the VR treatment, as other things planned remained silent.
“One more thing” Peter says, and so many questions to be answered. Harvey Smith, co-creative director at Arkane Studios, joined the conference and gave us a glimpse of Dishonored 2, showing abilities and graphics, tackling the narrative and the characters.
So, what do you think about all these new games and updates from Bethesda?
